619: ALL NEW Variety
This week on Prog-Watch I’m serving up a Variety program with music from Cyril, Kinetic Element, The Far Meadow, and Coma Rossi, plus newcomers Last Flight To Pluto and Astralingua! Also, I’ll have some Guest DJ selections chosen by long-time listener Rick Gibbs. Rick has suggested some great songs by IQ, Steven Wilson, Lonely Robot, and Subsignal! So I hope you will join me!
617: Variety with Guest DJ Selections
This week’s Prog-Watch is our semi-annual collaboration with some of the merry reviewers at The Progressive Aspect, bringing you some of the best Prog Rock releases this year! We’ll hear short reviews and sample music from ten of the best albums of 2017, as suggested by Mel Allen, Tony Colvill, Shawn Dudley, Rob Fisher, Jez Rowden, Roger Trenwith, and Leo Trimming. I’ll also pick a favorite of my own, and run down the whole list of albums which were nominated, but not represented on the show. (We do only have 90 minutes, and more than 30 albums were suggested!) So join me this week for a year-end round-up of some of the best new music released this year in our favorite genre!
450: Some Of The Best Of 2017
This week on Prog-Watch my special guest is modern progressive rock icon John Mitchell! John and I chat about many things including song writing, working with John Wetton, and his record label White Star Records! Along the way we hear music from many of his bands and projects, including the Urbane, Arena, Frost*, Kino, It Bites, Lonely Robot, and more! (Look for Part 2 in a few weeks!)
